Award-winning Indian Cuisine

Hailing from Kerala, on the tropical coast of South India, Chef Anand George opened Purple Poppadom having brought his unique style of Indian cuisine to Cardiff in 2008 following experience in London, including a Michelin-star restaurant.

Purple Popadom chefs love combining culinary heritage dishes from Kerala in the south to Kashmir in the north, and all points in between with our very special interpretations. We hope you enjoy or brand of Indian cuisine.

The Magic of Curry

For us everyday Indian food is magical! Our aim is to bring you real Indian dishes with their rainbow of colours, spices, and flavours and make this magic accessible to all.

We love combining traditional heritage dishes from the cities and villages all over India, with quality ingredients and a modern twist all of our own. We hope you’ll love it too.

We have won many awards since, including Best South Asian Restaurant in the UK. We are featured in The Michelin Guide and in 2021 and 2022 won the title: ‘Best in Wales’ at the prestigious British Curry Awards.
